A. Jean Brugger Foundation
Baseball Camp In SJDS, Nicaragua
Shatagin was an avid baseball
player who enjoyed coaching and encouraging kids to excel in the sport
he loved. He died as a young man in 2002 of complications from prenatal
hepatitis C. The Christopher Shatagin Sports Foundation was
created to carry on Christopher's legacy of improving the lives of young
people through sports. Since 2002, the foundation has funded deserving
programs in Vermont and San Juan del Sur, and it serves to honor the
memory of Christopher by the friends and family who loved him.
A. Jean Brugger believes every child deserves the right to learn and
to play baseball, and so does the Christopher Shatagin Sports
Foundation. These two foundations team up every year to present
baseball camps to youngsters in San Juan del Sur because we believe that
in the process, everyone gains an understanding of good sportsmanship
and team spirit.
